This is a little experiment in flash fiction, using photos by a very talented photographer, Ryan McGuire, who generously lets people use his images without charge - you can find them at Gratisgraphy. The idea is to craft a story in 100 words or less. If you'd like to have a go, write a story to go with this picture, 100 words maximum, and put it in the comments section.
"Here, have I ever shown you this? My shop the day it closed. I ran it for 45 years! I wanted to keep going but my daughter got me to sign some papers and the next thing I know I'm in this damn place. She said I wasn't able to cope any more. Nonsense! I hate this place, nothing but old people. Have I ever shown you this? This was my shop. I ran it for 45 years! My daughter's fault it closed...Where are you going? Wait, I don't think you've seen this photo of my shop..."
